111/112 Avenue (Norwood Boulevard) is a major arterial road in north Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. It serves Edmonton's west side industrial district, the old town of Jasper Place, North Downtown Edmonton, and post-World War II Edmonton. It passes a number of landmarks including the Telus World of Science, Westmount Centre, Kingsway Mall, Royal Alexandra Hospital, Glenrose Rehabilitation Hospital, and Commonwealth Stadium. The portion between 91 and 101 Streets has the name "Norwood Boulevard" in addition to 111 Avenue, this name has remained since the City of Edmonton decided to number its streets, but keep a select few names. It changes names at 91 Street to 112 Avenue. East of there, the street enters post-World War II neighbourhoods that are aligned with the North Saskatchewan River, and run slightly north. By 50 Street, 112 Avenue is where 115 Avenue should be, (3 blocks south of 118 Avenue), and ends so that the streets of the old town of Beverly can take over.

Redevelopment[edit]

On February 25, 2013 City Council passed a motion and will start evaluating option 2[1] for 111 Avenue redevelopment with a target area between 82 Street and 101 Street

Option 2: Improve Physical Infrastructure along Norwood Boulevard. Coordinate a streetscape plan that incorporates landscape infrastructure conducive to enhancing connectivity to surrounding initiatives and projects. This could include intersection modifications and associated landscape improvements on 96 Street and 95 Street linking to neighbourhood revitalization projects, business revitalization zones and others. Adapt existing eligibility requirements for the Façade Improvement Program and the Development Incentive Program to enable property owners along Norwood Boulevard to access funding. Currently, Façade Improvement Program funding is limited to projects within existing Business Revitalization Zone boundaries. A capital program and cost estimate for streetscape improvements would need to be developed. Physical infrastructure improvements are generally seen as a mechanism for encouraging business development in a given area.[2]
